ROME, June 26, 2007 (AFP) - French actor Gerard Depardieu has been summoned to appear before a court in Florence in central Italy in connection with a 2005 incident in which he is said to have headbutted a photographer.

Dario Orlandi claims to have been attacked on October 3 2005 when he snapped Depardieu shopping in a market in Florence in the company of a young woman.

He says Depardieu beckoned him over and then butted him in the face with the result he could not work for four days.

Depardieu said Orlandi was a "paparazzo," a charge rejected by the photographer who is a member of journalists' unions.
